Restore your oral health with Root Planing and Scaling…
At Bakery Hill Dental
Root planing and scaling is a deep cleaning below the gumline in order to treat gum disease.This non-surgical procedure prevents gum disease leading to major dental problems and prohibits the need for more costly dental work.
Scaling removes the plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gumline. Root planing smoothes the tooth root and helps the gums reattach to the tooth.
What to Expect
The first step is giving local anesthesia to numb the area to make treatment comfortable for you. With scaling and root planing, we can halt and even reverse gum disease. We might prescribe an antibacterial mouth rinse for you to use for several days or weeks to keep the pockets clean. In most cases, the pockets reduce once they are entirely clean and healthy.
Gum diseases are high risk for its recurrence. While most people receive dental cleaning every six months, We would suggest you see Dentist every three months. Procedure needs not be repeated unless you develop deep pockets again, but more frequent regular dental cleanings, along with scrupulous home care, are the keys to ensuring that this does not happen.
Gum disease is progressive, and it can eventually lead to tooth loss. With scaling and root planing, though, we can halt its progression and reverse the damage.
